Support Your Local No Kill Book Shelter

The No Kill Book Shelter for Books I Didn't Like

Just because one person didn't appreciate a book doesn't mean that someone else won't absolutely love it. The books you'll find here in the shelter have been badly neglected and unloved. In some instances they've even been verbally abused. Book violence is a very serious issue, one that we should all do our part to remedy. Support your local No Kill Book Shelter and give a bad book a second chance.

Books currently living in the shelter:

We will begin accepting applications for adoption on Monday. Details on the adoption process will be posted then.


Now before you throw a fit, these are books that *I* did not enjoy, not horrible pieces of crap that I'm trying to pawn off on you. These stories had merit, it's just that personally I didn't find them appealing. So far, I'm aware that the four current books in the shelter were books that many people loved and I bet one or two of them you actually want to read or did at one time. It's a fun way to win a book and give it a review that shows some love!

Aww, poor books. I'd personally love to adopt all four :D

Especially Shiver. The poor thing! *pats its little binding*

I would be interested in adopting Shiver.

I'd adopt A Map of the Known's in my TBR pile and due at the library soon, anyway. :) Cute post.

I've got a husband, 10 kids, 14 grandkids, 2 dogs, and 100's of books. 4 more wouldn't make a bit of I'd be happy to adopt them.

This is hilarious! I have no problem with you not liking books that everyone else seems to love. Haven't read these but there have been several over the past year, that I thought were meh, and people just got the vapors over.

Great idea!
